A few days after the departure of his trusted man, Xavier Thuilot, Claude Puel, spoke of his future in an interview with Le Progrès.
This week-end, the Forez club has formalized the departure of Xavier Thuilot, former director general of Ligue 1 training. If his position is now weakened within the Saint-Etienne board, Claude Puel does not want to argue on this issue. ” There is a decision that has been made and I want to be pragmatic about it, said the coach of the Greens. In this kind of situation, I like to behave like a professional. “
“The speculations? I have passed the age “
The coach of Saint Etienne knows full well that he has just lost his greatest ally in the management of the club. However, the departure of the one who had supported him in his decision to dismiss executives in the image of Stephane Ruffier and Loic Perrin does not call into question the future of Claude Puel in Sainté.
” The speculations around my case? I have passed the age, he continued. It is the club that is weakened for all the reasons listed, not me. I do not define a project and apply it as it seems to me. The club is financially impacted by the pandemic, by this broadcaster story and cannot be an actor in the transfer window. ASSE must be moved forward in the short term and prepared for the medium term future. “
